* .270

Caliber used depends on the weather and the setup situation. If it's raining, then the 30-30 gets wet. LOL! Love those Marlin 336's.

Title asks favorite caliber though. For me it's the .260 Rem.

My favorite caliber overall is the .270, but it's a close call with .25-06. Other than those two, I'd have to say .30-30. Jack O'Connor proved to me that the .270 Win. is one of the most versatile calibers in existence.
